It’s Wednesday once again, which means it’s time to share another conversation we bafflingly put to tape in a new episode of Podcast! The Comics!
This episode is brought to you by Wizard’s Comics, home of the best deal on comics in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Check out their website for a list of the week’s new releases and information on upcoming Magic, The Gathering tournaments, and watch their Twitter account for news and announcements about the shop and its wares.
Episode 17 – REAL TALK with Kelly Sue DeConnick
This week, the boys sit down for a long conversation with one of their very favourite people in the world, writer Kelly Sue DeConnick. What, for reasons unimaginable, starts off as a discussion of Tumblr and James’ field of work eventually turns to Kelly Sue’s upcoming projects: the new Captain Marvel series, Ghost and the latest Castle graphic novel, Richard Castle’s Storm Season, as well as KISS, the nature of art, self-doubt and how making the world a better place requires owning up to your fears and having hard discussions about difficult topics. It’s a freewheeling, varied conversation that goes from giggling fits to remarkably serious topics, and is all the better for it.
Remember to talk to your comic book shop about pre-ordering Kelly Sue’s new books and also to check out Rappers Doing Normal Shit. Finally, thanks again to Kelly Sue for being so generous with her time and her kind words.
